GALANO URGELLES, Rolando; RODRIGUEZ FERNANDEZ, Zenén  y  CASAUS PRIETO, Arbelio. Cáncer de colon: Seguimiento posoperatorio. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 1997, vol.36, n.1, pp.59-63. ISSN 0034-7493.

A longitudinal and prospective study of 69 patients operated on for colon cancer was carried out during 6 years. Patients were followed-up for the purpose of the study. The analysis evidenced that the most frequent age group ranged between 65 and 74 years and that there was a predominance of females, as well as of stages II and IIIb and groups BI and BII according to Dukes' classification. Certain relapses resulting in reoperations were detected. 5-fluoracil was used as a therapeutic agent, while the highest survival rate was attained in patients presenting with tumors in 0, I, II, and IIIa stages from groups A, BI, and CI of Dukes, or in those who complied with the cytostatic treatment. Survival outcomes were higher than the ones reported. Recommendations include to encourage mass screening in those risk groups at primary care level in order to detect early the entity, and thus improve the surgical outcomes and the results of postoperative follow-up
